As you know, OC Kickboxing & Mixed Martial Arts was honored to be one of only three California locations for the Ajarn Chai 50th Anniversary North American Seminar Tour.  We were also honored to be the only Orange County location for this momentous event!

We had an amazing turnout for both days of the seminar. We trained together, worked together, played together and made a ton of new friends! This seminar was a unique experience for a number of reasons – and not just because the Legendary Ajarn Chai came to visit, teach and spend time with the OCKMMA Family!

We had a number of surprise guests from Los Angeles – including OCKMMA’s very own Kru Nathan who is now living and working in Los Angeles. And, you guessed it, he’s now training with the Legendary Guro Dan Inosanto in Marina Del Rey. Kru Nathan was on-hand to assist Ajarn Chai with Kru Testing – and he was a welcome addition to the festivities. It sure was great to welcome Kru “N8” home for a visit.

In addition, this was one of the most well-attended seminars we’ve had on a Sunday at OCKMMA. Over 40 participants turned out to welcome and congratulate Ajarn Chai on his 50th Anniversary North American Tour.  Additionally, and for the first time ever at OCKMA, kids were able to step onto the mat and train with the OCKMMA Team and Ajarn Chai. It was indeed an honor to be a part of this historic event.

Last, but most certainly not least, three of OCKMMA’s finest coaches geared up for promotion with the Legendary Ajarn Chai. After years of studying and countless hours of dedication and training, Coach Felipe, Coach Drew and Safia stepped into the ring under the watchful eye of the “Father of Muay Thai” and Founder of the World Thai Boxing Association himself — the Legendary Ajarn Chai.

Two grueling rounds later, we’re proud to welcome the newest additions to our ranks: Khun Kru Felipe; Kkun Kru Drew; and Khun Crew Safia – a veritable “Crew of Kru”!

On hand was OCKMMA’s very own Khun Kru Dennis Hall — Programs Director, Fight Team Coordinator and one of our most senior Muay Thai martial artists. We’re proud of our team – and we’re proud of our newest Instructors.
